It would be newsworthy to discover the exact monthly payout by government for office space, especially since the police have now been moved from their head office at Upper Bridge Street to rental premises in the heart of the city. It would also be useful to discuss in layman terms, to what other worthy projects of national development these monthly payments might be applied. It is difficult to disentangle the increasing rent debacle from the ever-increasing complaints about fungi in public offices—what the average person refers to as mould. The common wisdom is that these “new” government offices were not built to be enclosed and air-conditioned, hence the infestations.
